      Do not:

      Open your mouth and speak around women.
      Eat food in front of anyone.
      Breath to heavy on anyone.
      Forget to take a shower, at least every other day.
      Forget her name. wink
      Forget her phone number. smile

      And, absolutely do not forget to put to keep your penile tool in your pocket, until she is ready, able and willing to accept it. smile

      Well, from this point of view....there isn't much that doesn't make a man ugly. So good luck. smile

      I myself am ugly however I found the following to be received positively by the opposite sex:
      1. Mention your love of snuggling.
      2. Advertise your burning desire to share feelings.
      3. Never offer advice-just listen.
      4. Ask questions.
      5. Tell her that if you were not able to hold hands you would perish.

      Please note that I am single however!

      i think when men brag about how "well-endowed" they are roll, or make lewd remarks and gestures or get in your face. last night at the grocery store i was minding my own business and this motorcycleish dude kept following me, so i diverted into the feminine products aisle thinking i would be safe there and there he is right in front of me two inches away so i ignored him and he goes "I WONT BITE" and i just turned around and he goes "Pfft". anyway, pushy men, along with the other traits i mentioned are the most unattractive any way you slice it.

      I know, fashion wise, all men look better in a suit than in casual clothes.

      Also, do not brag or talk about yourself too much, or generally be a jerk, you should know what this means if you were raised with any sort of manners...

        Plus, you can't be a cheapskate. Especially on the first date because you want to make a good impression. Coupons are bad. Asking her for money is bad. That doesn't mean that you have to take her out to the most expensive restaurant ever, just a guy paying for my hot dog at A and W would be great for me, or something. But if you do splurge on an expensive date, you are almost guaranteed to get laid.

    well starting with common sense, don't be a freaking slob where you don't take a bath for days or possibly months at a time.  Don't scratch yourself in inappropriate places.  brush your teeth two to three times daily.  wear good looking and CLEAN clothes.  and most of all DISCO IS FREAKING DEAD!!!!  There, that should be enough to start you off.  the rest, i'm sure some of our own hubpages ladies can help you figure out the rest.  lol.

    1. Personal hygiene is very important.
    2. Make us feel at ease around you.
    3. Don't talk about yourself too much.
    4. Make us feel special, like we are the only person in the world at that moment.
    5. Call us beautiful instead of cute or hot.
    6. Just reach out and hold us once in awhile without expecting anything in return.
    7. When you kiss us, don't go straight down our throats with your tongue. Instead, gently kiss us with your mouth partially open and wait for us to take the lead.
    8. Hold our hands sometimes. Make us feel like you are proud to be seen in public with us.
    9. Let us know that you want us, need us, and love us without being overly obsessive about it.
    10. Just be yourself.

            It's not impossible to make someone feel loved and needed without being overly obsessive about it.

            For example, I once dated a man who LITERALLY never stopped touching me unless I went to the bathroom. I dated him for a total of three days.

        Well, I would call a kitten or a puppy cute. And to me, calling someone hot is cheap or trashy.

    I don't get this question. We are all ugly or beautiful to someone. I do not have much regard for concepts of 'ugly' except when someone male or female has an ugly disposition.
    I have never cared what females thought of my looks or my clothes. Take me how I am or leave it out has been my way of seeing it, and I have had plenty of beautiful females in my life. smile

      Absolutely agree. Some men who certainly do not have classical good looks can be immensely attractive. For me, Leonard Bernstein was one of the hottest men ever. It was the way he moved to the music while he conducted that did it  *melt*

      Attitude is vital. Ex no. 1 was a control freak and convinced his way of thinking and doing things was the only way. Anyone who disagreed was an emotional cripple, a failure, insane or all three.

      I also agree with the comments on personal hygiene and general slobbishness. That is what killed it with ex no. 2, who thought once he was married he no longer had to bother.

    the question is what makes a man ugly.....

    well i only know what makes him attractive sorry...

    kind eyes.....

    caring disposition,

    teeth are quite important.....

    smelly men, are a bit of a turn off....

    I have men in mind who i consider attractive, but actually they do not necessarily look great..... it is more that they are nice to be around.  An ugly man could be beautiful on the outside, but you get a strong feeling, you just do not want to be around him.....

    That is my take on this

    I think a lack of hygiene and grooming makes anyone unattractive. I've never understood how some men can let a thatch of hairs spout from their nostrils and earholes -- that really is revolting, and there are good trimmers on the market nowadays. And men with whiny voices must surely be a turn-off to women.

    Once, the magazine GQ I think it was, picked up several homeless men, took them into a studio, cleaned them up, fixed up with some nice clothing and presto - the awful mess they were disappeared. They all became handsome gentlemen.

  25. Chaotic Chica profile image73
    Chaotic Chicaposted 7 years ago

    Ugliness, in my opinion, is not about physical looks.  It's about attitude.  This applies to men and women.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and a man who is real, honest, approachable, these things matter.  A man who is not conventionally handsome but treats others with respect and never judges or stereotypes another person is attractive to me. 

    If you're looking to score with a chick, forget it, you've already disrespected her. If you're looking for a relationship, get to know her. Play up your strengths, forget about your looks. Listen to her, she will tell you what she wants from you. Until you get to know her, how can you know how to approach her? Be her friend. Be her friend's friend. You can let her know you're interested but you must give her space. Neediness indicates a man who needs a mother, not a lover and that, too, is unattractive.

    Bottom line, respect her, treat others fairly and kindly and don't pretend to be someone you are not and the girls worth your time will find you attractive.

  26. Dolores Monet profile image99
    Dolores Monetposted 7 years ago

    Well, we should all pay attention to looks. I went to Catholic school and even the nuns had a thing about looks and how you keep yourself. 'The body is the temple of the Holy Spirit,' they said. Being attractive is all about being clean and appropriately attired. If some guy is a big, fat, stinky slob, that shows disrespect for himself as well as the people that he meets.

    1. Chaotic Chica profile image73
      Chaotic Chicaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      You are right in that aspect.  What I mean when I say to not worry about your looks is not to be bothered by a crooked nose or a tall forehead or little ears, things about your physical being that you cannot change without unneccesary surgery.  So what if you do not have the looks to grace a magazine spread? Yes, care enough about how you look to be clean, but do not focus on imperfections.

      God knew you before you were born and loves you unconditionally.  In His eyes, vanity is a sin and cleanliness is next to godliness.  The two are different.  Care about your health and hygene, not about 'looks'.

    A guy who is insecure in his masculinity often makes up for it by by being arrogant, mean, and obnoxious. The sexiest men are the confidant ones, who love women not just for their bodies and looks, but for everything that makes them female.

        I don't think it is outdated - it is the opposite that is outdated.

        Form symmetry and balance are how it is made, how we see those things are our subjective view of it.  BUT  if you have one eye one inch higher than the other?, or a very wide nose and small mouth? Symmetry catches most of it, a wide nose with a wide mouth can be beautiful, and glitches can show just how beautiful everything else is.

        The idea that we 'just know' from some inner place is Romantic era thinking where painters would move waterfalls to achieve the balance and symmetry to make their idea of beauty.

    What makes a man ugly?

    1. a controlling nature
    2. manipulation
    3. deceit
    4. lewd humor
    5. inappropriate dependency while claiming appropriate "strong family ties"
    6. insensitivity to others
    7. selfishness
    8. loud & obnoxious
    9. argumentative (I don't mean men have to always agree - just don't argue ALL the time!)
    10. laziness
    11. physical care mentioned prior

    Of course, this applies to women as well!

    A man becomes <a href="http://mysexystories.com/blog/2010/02/24/newsflash-ugly-guys-dont-treat-you-better">ugly</a> when he doesn't make himself presentable enough. He doesn't care about what others may say about his attitude or appearance. Like he just don't care about anything.

    Do not be a pessimist all of the time, also be optimistic and always listen to a woman when she is speaking. Be attentive to her and give her respect. smile

    What makes a man ugly huh? hmm

    Clearly his parents must take some responsibility for the ugly genes that they passed on!

    The ugliest men are those who never learnt to not be angry and take it out on others. sad

    What makes a man ugly is a ugly personality.
    A man who doesn't respect women,is violent, rude or talks a pile of crock wash and has his head so far up his butt he may as well be a dim sim.
    He can be the best lookin' sort on the outside but if he doesn't have it going on inside_____________________down he goes.
    Same goes for women.

    Do not be anything less than who you really are. Whether you're arrogant, or self conscious, so be it. Not that you shouldn't strive to be your best possible self, but just be real about who you are and what you stand for.
